Not as much progress as I would have liked. I guess I will have to stop by my rental house and see what's up with the rent. In the meantime, I paid my portion today. It only takes 24 hours for a transfer from my checking to my mortgage account so I went ahead and did it before May was over.
I made an extra payment of $636 bringing the mortgage total to $18,940. Under $20k finally. If all goes as planned, I will still have it paid off in 6 more months although my buffer at the end has been eaten up. I really hope the next 6 months go as planned or else I'll have to add another month on to the end. That's not the end of the world, of course, I was just hoping to have the mortgage gone before Christmas.
And if I stopped paying extra now and started saving for a giant pack-rat proof garage, it would take 2 years and 11 months to pay it off the slow way. Much better than 24 more years which is what it would have been if I hadn't paid any extra.
Yippee! The end is just around the corner. Just have to make it through the scorching hot summer.
Are you going to have an internet mortgage-burning party when you make the last payment? I am sure all of us online followers of you would love to see it in person but we will surely settle for pictures of the mortgage aflame!
I forgot that people do that Dave. I should do that. Or maybe I should give it to the dogs to shred. :P
